Scripture Lady’s Bible Memory Verse Games: Surprise Sounds


The Scripture Lady loves creating Bible memory verse games! Here is one called “Surprise Sounds” to make memorizing Scripture fun.

As a Sunday School teacher, I am always looking for new and creative ways for kids to learn their Bible verses. Here is one of my very favorite memory verse games. I call it “Surprise Sounds” and it is sure to become one of your kids’ favorites as well.

Bible memory verse games will help your children hide God’s Word in their hearts and for this one you will need to do the following:

First of all, this Bible memory verse activity can be used with both preschoolers and elementary aged children. Here is how it works. Simply take any Bible verse you are working on, such as John 3:16, and begin reciting it by using many different kinds of voices. Here is a list I have come up with:…

1. Say it like Mickey (or Minnie) Mouse.
2. Say it in an English accent. (Chip – Chip – Cheerio!)
3. Say it with a whisper.
4. Say it like you’re afraid.
5. Say it really, really fast.
6. Say it really, really slow.
7. Say it like you’re really tired. (Yawn, yawn.)
8. Say it like you’re an opera diva. (Or should I say, “Sing it”?)
9. Say it like you have a cold. (Ahh-choo!)
10. Say it while laughing.
11. Say it while crying.
12. Say it with a New York accent.
13. Say it with a really high-pitched voice.
14. Say it with really low-pitched voice.
15. Say it like you’re shivering cold. (Brrrrr)
16. Say it like you’re deathly thirsty.
17. Say it with the hiccups.
18. Say it like you’re a 007 spy.
19. Say it while holding your bottom lip.
20. Shout it out to the Lord!

There you go! Twenty great and fun ways to help you and your kids memorize God’s amazing Word.

  • this way of teaching verse is really exciting and iam going to teach this in this week sunday school .thank you so much. after joining in your website im getting lots of ideas and my sunday school have been started to multiply by gods grace.I really want to thank God for such wonderful person who help us and give nice thoughts .God bless

  • You have given me so many fun and very neat ideas…thanks alot sweetie!! God bless you!

  • HAHA! I thought this was my idea! I have used this method in my church class & also homeschooling my kids… it has always been a fun way to learn. I always put the “voices” on strips of paper & in a box, then have the kids pick one without looking. The other kids have to guess the character of the voice. (this gets the kids listening to the scripture being said because they want to be the first to guess the voice) Besides voices, I have actions. Here are some of my ideas,
    while running a race,
    driving a race car,
    swimming or underwater,
    being chased by a dog,
    while skydiving,
    as a cheerleader,
    as a hunter,
    at the library,
    as a salon stylist,
    as a sculpture artist,
    really thirsty,
    eating cereal,
    like you are telling a grand adventure story,
    during an earthquake,
    avoiding objects thrown at you,
    as a parent on the phone,
    as a parent trying to get grocery shopping done with her rowdy kids,
    fairy princess,
    Barney the dinosaur,
    Cookie Monster,
    Buggs Bunny
    as a barbie,
    a baby,
    a farmer,
    riding a horse down a really bumpy road,
    a giant snake is gobbling you up,
    in a powerful wind tunnel,
    bugs crawling on you,
    scoring a touchdown

    Of course, some of these will be harder then others, sometimes I give the kids ideas of how to do their voice or action, but you just have to decide what will work for your class. If you have a big class, maybe just a few kids could play this game every week. (Whose gonna get picked this week?? can be part of the fun)

    My biggest tip… usually in class, the first time we play this game, no one wants to go first, so the best way to get the ball rolling is after everyone has picked their voice and/or action (and had a second to think about it) I usually pick one & do it myself…. this usually gets the kids laughing and it never fails, that’s all it takes! Even the shy kids play along.

  • Oh, my goodness! What a great idea! Thanks so much for taking the time to give lots more voices. You definitely get the Christian Teacher of the Week Award!! Blessings!
